CMAPI CONFIGRET CM_Get_Device_IDW( DEVINST dnDevInst, PWSTR Buffer, ULONG BufferLen, ULONG ulFlags );
Caller-supplied device instance handle that is bound to the local machine.
Address of a buffer to receive a device instance ID string. The required buffer size can be obtained by calling CM_Get_Device_ID_Size, then incrementing the received value to allow room for the string's terminating NULL.
Caller-supplied length, in characters, of the buffer specified by Buffer.
Not used, must be zero.
If the operation succeeds, the function returns CR_SUCCESS. Otherwise, it returns one of the CR_-prefixed error codes defined in Cfgmgr32.h.
The function appends a NULL terminator to the supplied device instance ID string, unless the buffer is too small to hold the string. In this case, the function supplies as much of the identifier string as will fit into the buffer, and then returns CR_BUFFER_SMALL.
